Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

How to Get U.S. Citizenship (2nd edition)

May marks Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. The month was chosen to honor the arrival of the first Japanese to the United States in 1843. It also commemorates the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, largely built by Chinese immigrants, in 1869, just a couple of the myriad ways members of the Asian Pacific diaspora have left their indelible imprint on American history and culture.
